Finding Us Blog Tour Banner

Finding Us Cover

Jag Jensen and Ellen Love had been best friends their whole lives until he turned thirteen and started noticing girls his own age, but that didn’t mean he stopped watching out for eleven-year-old Ellen. By his senior year in high school, baseball had taken the front seat in his life, with a scholarship to college and a pro career looming on the horizon, when sophomore Ellen caught his attention and they struck up their friendship again. Although Ellen wanted more, Jag didn’t want to drag her into what he knew would be a crazy life, but love has a way of deciding one’s future, and eventually they became a couple. Ellen followed him to California as he began his pro career, but his wild and hectic lifestyle screwed everything up.
Now Jag is lost, realizing he’s never been without his best friend in his life. Learning to live without Ellen doesn’t settle well with him, so while trying to remain at the top of his career, he also wants to get his girl back, which proves to be more difficult than he thought it’d be. Will Ellen give him another chance or does that sort of thing only happen in the sappy romance novels she always used to read? Jag hopes she’s willing to try again as he puts his heart on the line for the woman he knows will always be his forever and a day.

Finding Us (True Love #2) – February 2014

OK…I made a major boo-boo when reading this book….I started with this one and was completely confused when I started this….so I had to go back to GR and stalk all the reviews for “Discovering Us” --- and boy oh boy what a douche bag Jag was in the ending but you know what worked?  Getting this second book in his POV – I was dying to know his explanation to why?  Why did he break El’s heart?

And what the hell is up with this super model who just had to ruin EVERYTHING!  Oh this book took me on such a draining roller coaster ride that left me feeling sick to my stomach. 

The writing style is superb and the male POV gets me every time.  Many authors miss the mark with writing in the male POV but Ms. Bentley hit this one right on the nose!  Great job with taking a “hated” guy and switching it up to make us fall back in love with him.

I kept waiting and waiting for Jag and El’s HEA but unfortunately it never came and left me with a cliffy that will have me biting my nails till June!




Harper Bentley has taught high school English for 21 years. Although she’s managed to maintain her sanity regardless of her career choice, jumping into the world of publishing her own books goes to show that she might be closer to the ledge than was previously thought.
